When you start using marijuana, the first thing you realize is that it’s easy to tell when you’ve had enough. The feeling of being high is unmistakable. But figuring out your dosage for CBD products isn’t as easy. After all, there’s no THC and you won’t get high even if you take a large amount of the product throughout the day. So, how much CBD should you take? Here are a few simple tips from the budtenders at your favorite Denver dispensary
Pay Attention to the Concentration
CBD products are available in different concentrations and that concentration will impact your dosage. Higher concentrations mean you can typically use less product to achieve the desired effect. Look at the label of the product and see how much CBD is in each serving. Lower concentrations may leave you wanting to use the product more often throughout the day. This is fine, but be sure to listen to your body and see how you feel after you take the product.
How Are You Using It?
CBD products are available in tinctures, topical lotions and patches, edibles, and vapes, just to name a few. This allows you to fine-tune how your body receives the CBDs. But different products will require different dosages. For example, you may need to use a lotion more frequently than a vape pen because the CBDs reach your bloodstream differently. It largely depends on how you want to use the CBD and what you’re wanting to achieve.
Start Low and Work Your Way Up
Most CBD products have a suggested dosage on the label and it’s a great place to start. Stick with that dosage for the first few uses and see how you feel. If you think the effects of the CBD are too mild, increase your dose slightly and reevaluate. Surprisingly, CBDs often work better with lower dosages. This means you’ll want to increase slowly and take the time to evaluate how you feel after each increase. It requires patience, but you’ll be able to find the right dose more easily if you’re willing to go slow.
Know That Everyone is Different
Dosages will vary from person to person. This is because everyone processes CBD differently. And the more you use your products, the more you’ll understand how each one makes you feel. The suggested dosage on the label is just a guideline. It won’t work for everyone and you’ll need to figure out what works for you. By all means, ask for advice from friends, your budtender, and even the internet. But remember that the only way to know what dosage is right for you is to try it yourself.
Get Started With CBDs
The only way to know how much you should take is to try a product for yourself. Start with the lowest dosage and gradually increase if needed. Once you figure out what works best for your body and your needs, you’ll be good to go. Still nervous about trying CBDs?
